Step past pots of flowers by the front door to find a friendly home full of fascinating old maps, photos from Susie’s world travels, interesting books and objets d’art. Guests love it here.
The top floor is all yours: you have a cosy bedroom under the eaves, and there’s a second room with bunk beds if you want to bring an extra guest. Breakfast is at a table overlooking the patio or downstairs in the elegant dining room; Susie gives you organic bread, pastries, fruit, yogurt, cereals and excellent coffee. She’s happy to help with your itinerary and can tell you the best places to eat nearby.
It’s just a stroll to tapas, cafés and wine bars, Portobello Market browsing and a surprising number of bookshops.
